Whether it’s Eddie, the local bald eagle, or the magnificent sunsets over Lake Livingston, there’s plenty of natural wonder at the Lake Livingston KOA in Onalaska, Texas, located in Polk County and the heart of the Piney Woods of East Texas.

The 105-site campground on 30 developed acres wraps along the shore of Lake Livingston, boasting the area’s most spectacular sunsets. It’s an ideal year-round resort for boating, swimming, fishing for bass and catfish and relaxing by the lake – perhaps at one of our premium lakefront RV sites.

The American Bass Anglers American Fishing Tour includes tournaments on Jan. 19, Feb. 9, Feb. 22-23, March 9 and April 5.

In the area we have the following tournaments on Lake Livingston: Anglers Quest, Bud Light Trail – USA Bass Trails, CAST (Couples Association of Sport Tournaments), Texas State Bass Tournament and the Texas Team Trail.

It’s little wonder that our campground has earned both the Founder’s Award and President’s Award from KOA and a superior rating of 10/9/10 in the leading campground directory.


You like mysteries? Then check out the “Light of Saratoga,” also known as the “Ghost Road” of Saratoga, the “Saratoga Light” and “Bragg Road Ghost Light” by local residents. Located on a dirt road, it is a light that may appear and disappear at random during the dark of night without explanation. The most popular story surrounding this legend is that a railroad worker was decapitated in a railway accident, and the light is that of his lantern as his ghost searches endlessly for his head.

Speaking of ghosts, Polk County has its own ghost town located in the community once known as Swartout.

Eagles' nest located near our campground.

Bald eagles frequently fly over our campground.

However, there’s no mystery about Eddie the eagle, one of two eagles that routinely fly over our campground. An eagle’s nest is visible from our campground.
